If you wish to do the work yourself and save a lot of money then contacting Blackpool Air Rifles for a V-Mach kit is a good place to start!

As they come the TX uses a piston weight and a relatively soft spring, this gives a smooth but sluggish firing cyle and makes follow through critical, it can sometimes also cause POI changes between standers and sitters, the V-Mach kit dispenses with the piston weight and uses a high quality stiffer spring, V-Mach piston seal and spring guide and also supplies pre load shims and spacer for you to experiment with.

the end result is a much faster firing cycle with the lighter piston/stiffer spring, it tamesa a lot of the POI changes and keeps the smooth firing cycle, but, it's more of a crack than a berdunk effect, its not harsh but its faster, so you have to decide how you want the rifle to fire?

As highly as i rate Steve pope and the work he does i wouldn't send the gun off for specialist tuning personally, i had my Pro-sport done and to be quite honest i coudn't tell the difference. A kit might help if the standard spring and guide are not correctly matched, but i wouldn't go any further, i'd rather put the cash to a custom stock which is somewhere you would see a benefit with the AA springers.

If you really want to tune the TX200 Sandwell Field Sports. Most people will say V-Mach. But give Sandwell a ring but if it's brand new leave maybe add a bit of rowan bling on there. Rowan trigger is a perfect match.

But You maybe better off saving the cash and buying a nice scope.
